One Step To Freedom: Helping India Grow One Step At A Time

Freedom is a feeling that cannot be touched or seen. It can only be felt. A sense of liberation, to be able to lead a life of our choice – that’s independence for every human.

Be it a man or a woman, a child or an elderly – everyone is entitled to live a barrier-free life. At the Ponty Chadha Foundation, we believe in the liberation of the Indian youth from unemployment, women from defecating in open, children with special needs from being dependent on someone, and people in general from health ailments.

With our #OneStepToFreedom, we enable the citizens to be capable of living a life free from dependency on others, a life of dignity. Our motto is to make each Indian feel free with our initiatives. Here’s how we have brought smiles to children and adults alike:

Breaking Communication Barriers
At PCF, we help people overcome their inability/disability to communicate fluently. Our mobile app, Vaakya, enables the speech impaired to communicate effectively through pictures. We also provide sign language training to help them express their emotions effortlessly.

Skills Academy
Wave Skills Academy is a world-class training institute, which imparts trainings to the Indian youth for making them earn a livelihood. The youth is trained in hospitality, security services, fire-fighting, housekeeping, etc.

With regular Health Checkup Camps the Ponty Chadha Foundation ensures the rural India enjoys the best of health conditions. Regular free health checkup camps are conducted in villages to provide good health to everyone.

Spreading Awareness About Rural Sanitation
Every citizen is entitled to live a clean and hygienic life. We ensure that the rural population is aware of the hygienic conditions they need to maintain around them to enjoy a healthy life.

Building A Happy And Independent India
Mata Bhagwanti Chadha Niketan is an initiative close to our hearts. It was found to help our children become capable to contribute to the growth of a successful India. We help kids with special needs to overcome their disabilities to lead a normal and happy life.

Ensuring No One Sleeps On An Empty Stomach PCF, in collaboration with the India Food Banking Network, works towards ensuring people below the poverty line do not go to sleep on an empty stomach. A healthy India is a wealthy India – that’s what we believe in. And that’s why we provide underprivileged communities with essential food items.

To sum things up, our #OneStepToFreedom is an initiative to enable each citizen with a healthy and independent life. We are proud to be fulfilling this responsibility with utmost honesty. And we request you all to join us in making India a nation free from poverty, ill health and illiteracy.

All About Youth: Towards a Skillful India

All About Youth: Towards a Skilful India

“Arise, awake, and stop not until the goal is reached.” – Swami Vivekananda

Since 1985, India has been celebrating National Youth Day or Yuva Day on January 12, the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda – social reformer, philosopher and thinker. The objective behind it was to impart the philosophy and ideals of Swami Vivekananda to our students in particular, and the youth in general. Various activities like processions, speeches, conventions, presentations, seminars and competitions are planned for the day to encourage and inspire the youth to embark on a journey towards the development of a skillful country.

It was predicted that India will become the world’s youngest country by 2020, with 64 per cent of its population in the working age group of 15-64. To boost the potential of youths coming from less advantaged families, Sardar Kulwant Singh Chadha Skills Academy has been training and empowering them to earn a decent livelihood. At the academy, students are trained in the fields of facilities management, security services, hospitality and computer literacy, and are prepared to deal with on-the-job challenges and responsibilities via field demonstrations, classroom sessions and rigorous practical exercises.

In order to encourage competitiveness and make the environment more challenging, the academy even reaches out to train qualified young men from marginalised sections on a regular basis. As and when their training nears completion, these students are hired by various Indian companies and MNCs.

With Sardar Kulwant Singh Chadha Skills Academy by their side, many have headed towards a future of fulfillment. The ultimate challenge, however, lies in preparing a competent workforce that can adapt well to varying industry demands.
